Title: Investigating the Impact of Social Support on Mental Health Outcomes in College Students
Mental health issues are a significant concern among college students, with research indicating that nearly half of all college students experience mental health problems at some point during their academic careers (Smith et al., 2018). Social support has been identified as a key factor in mitigating the negative effects of stress and promoting mental health (Cohen & Wills, 1985). However, there is limited research examining the specific ways in which social support impacts mental health outcomes in college students.
Objectives: The primary objective of this study is to investigate the relationship between social support and mental health outcomes in college students. Specifically, the study aims to:
- Examine the types of social support that are most effective in promoting mental health among college students.
- Determine the role of social support in reducing stress and promoting coping among college students.
- Explore the potential moderating effects of demographic variables (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation) on the relationship between social support and mental health outcomes.
Data will be analyzed using regression analyses to examine the relationship between social support and mental health outcomes, controlling for demographic variables. Moderation analyses will be conducted to explore potential moderating effects of demographic variables on this relationship.
It is expected that social support will be significantly related to mental health outcomes in college students. Specifically, it is expected that higher levels of social support will be associated with lower levels of depression, anxiety, and stress and higher levels of coping. It is also expected that certain types of social support (e.g., instrumental, emotional) may be more effective in promoting mental health than others. Finally, it is expected that demographic variables may moderate the relationship between social support and mental health outcomes, such that the effects of social support may be stronger for some groups (e.g., racial/ethnic minorities) than others.
